Badminton Club 2016-2017
The badminton club usually begins playing just after Thanksgiving. All Myer students are welcome to come out and play...there are no try-outs. You are welcome to join the club at any point in the season. If you have your own racquet, that is great. If not, we have extras that you are welcome to borrow. Practice times are posted across from Mr. Koop's room (room 6). We usually play at 7:00 in the morning one or two days a week.
